It is that one. But that is 10 incoming streams at the same time that need to be transcoded. Not outgoing streams. Also, you can have as many streams as you want going to wowza if they don’t get transcoded.
Instance means one server.
If you need more than 10 transcoded incoming streams running at once, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and talk to them about pricing for what you do need.
Sure, In streaming, transcoding is when you send us a stream and we repackage it for distribution to reach more viewers on more devices.
For example, you have an IP camera that sends a stream as RTSP and you need to be delivered out over the protocol HLS, which most devices support for playback. Wowza transcoder would convert it from RTSP to HLS.
The transcoder also creates different stream versions of bitrates for someone watching on a 4K tv or someone watching your stream on a mobile phone. They require different stream versions with different bitrates.
Transcoding can mean creating copies of your stream with different bitrates, resolution ,codecs and protocols.
If you send a webrtc stream and it goes to a viewer exactly as webrtc with no changes at all to anything at all, that would not use the transcoder.
In our situation, all the digital contents are mp4 and mp3 files stored in wowza server’s /content folder.
Is it safe to say that there will be no ‘transcoding’? Thus, wowza server won’t have 10 concurrent transcode limitation?
